Adapter Q for K-mount Lenses

Pentax Ricoh Imaging UK LTD is pleased to announce the launch of the Adapter Q for K-mount lenses. This lens mount adapter makes it possible to use PENTAX K-mount lenses on the PENTAX Q series cameras.

The new mount adapter allows the full range of K-mount lenses to be used on the Pentax Q series cameras. This range consists of 215** lenses and ranging from fish-eye to uni-focal wide-angle to telephoto zoom lenses. The adapter allows the photographer to take full advantage of a wide variety of perspectives and visual effects with quick, effortless lens changes. In addition, it gives the user the opportunity to capture a microscopic world usually impossible to view with the naked eye.

The new mount adapter will extend the focal length of the Pentax Q series by approximately 5.5-times in the 35mm format. As a result, the smc Pentax-DA* 300mm F4 ED[IF] SDM telephoto lens will produce the same image as a 1650mm super-telephoto lens in the 35mm format. The adapter allows the user to take effortless photography of distant scenery, wildlife and celestial bodies using a compact, light digital imaging system.

A mechanical shutter has also been incorporated into the adapter to prevent “rolling shutter distortion.” This occurs when there is camera shake caused by photographing fast-moving subjects and/or by using a super-telephoto lens resulting in distorted images of the subject.

Major Features:
  • Manual aperture control possible
  • Tripod bracket (optional) available to stabilise the camera system
  • Camera shake is automatically compensated for with any lens, simply by inputting the focal length of the mounted lens to the PENTAX Q series
Other Features:
  • Size - 68mm (d) ×37mm (l)
  • Weight - 145g
  • Shutter speed 1/1000~30 sec
  • Five shutter blades

The camera’s firmware must be updated to the latest version in order to properly use this product with the Pentax Q series.

The Pentax Adapter Q will be available from early October. RRP £249.99.

For more information, visit the Pentax website.


*Only manual focusing is available with K-mount lenses.
